Figure 3 shows a simple design suitable
for 6 - to 17-M. Antenna has the triangular shape. Special ‘sitting’
should be used for the antenna design. Vibrators are screwed in
the bottom with the help of strong screws. The design has a small
mutual influence for every vibrator against each other.

Figure 4 shows a simple
design suitable for 6 - to 30-M.
Vibrators are screwed to a strong metal angle.

the vibrators are 10 -30 centimeters. It is decrease the mutual
influence of the vibrators to each other.
Antenna Adjusting: The antenna is adjusted by changing lengths of the
vibrators. It is not complicated. One way is to move vibrators
relatively the metal base, as it is shown in Figure 5. Do it carefully, because the vibrators
have mutual influence to each other. It needs to do additional
holes on to end of the vibrators for realization of the way. It
is possible to do one of the vibrators. This method always gives
a good result.
Figure 5 A three range antenna adjusting
way is to change lengths of the upper ends of the vibrators. The vibrators ends made from thick copper
or aluminum wire. The wire may be shortened, move in the side,
as it is shown in Figure
6. But at the way an amateur must have access
to ends of the antenna.

Figure 7 shows a simple
design suitable for 40 - to 160-M.
Vibrators made from a copper wire in diameter 1 to 2 mm.
Vibrators have length (λ/4)*1.1.
Each vibrator is matched with coaxial cable with help of its own
a ‘shortening ’capacitor. The shortening capacitor can have 100-pF
at ranges of 6- to 17-M, 150-pF at ranges of 20- and 30-M, 200-pF
at ranges of 40-80 meters, 250-pF at 160-M. The shortening capacitors
should be placed in a whether- proof box.

1 to 2 mm.
